The EUREKA project application form is available in the call webpage through

The project consortium is strongly advised to contact the national project coordinators and to read the call text and the application form carefully, follow the guidelines and complete all necessary elements in the form as requested. Most countries requires a national application in addition to the EUREKA form. However, IFD only requires a registration of the EUREKA application form on our national e-grant platform, CVs of key personal and a budget form including the costs of all partners.

NB: The German ZIM programme will need 2-3 months for their evaluation. Project start can accordingly be postponed. Read more about the ZIM application procedures here:

Danish call conditions
Specific National funding rules for the call:
Åben sektion, Specific National funding rules for the call:

IFD funds projects with at least one Danish industrial partner. IFD can, however, fund all types of partners, and encourage universities, research organisations, hospitals, organisations and large enterprises as well as SME’s to participate in the call.

IFD can fund from €50.000 to €300.000 to Danish partners in a project. If the Danish part of the project is identical to an already national funded Grand Solution Covid-19 project, an additional “bridge funding” in this EUREKA call of up to €50.000 can be accepted.

In international projects IFD only fund Danish organisations participating as partners or coordinators in the projects if their project activities take place in Denmark. Subcontracting to Danish or foreign organisations can to a limited extend take place if declared in the application or later approved by IFD.
